Hi,
The use of a namespace to surround the windows headers causes a problem with the Visual Studio 8 Betas compiler and the sourceannotations.h file.

Using
namespace MyWin32
{
#include <windows.h>
#include <tchar.h>
}


means lines such as
typedef ::vc_attributes::YesNoMaybe SA_YesNoMaybe;

create compiler errors because vc_attributes is not in the global namespace.

Does anyone have a recommended workaround.
